USDA Reports Oklahoma Has Over 9.5 Million Acres of Cropland in 2020 The Annual Acreage Report for 2020 from the National Ag Statistics Service of USDA shows that Oklahoma has a total of 9.554 million acres in major reported crops in 2020. The two largest planted and/or harvested crops by the number of acres reported by USDA in Oklahoma include winter wheat and all hay.


Oklahoma is the second largest winter wheat in the United States in 2020, with 4.3 million acres planted and 2.7 million acres harvested, behind only Kansas and ahead of Texas in harvested acres. In the case of all hay acres- USDA reports that Oklahoma has 2.92 million acres of all hay in 2020- down slightly from the 3.005 million acres of 2019. Oklahoma is the fourth largest state in the country in total hay acres- behind Texas, South Dakota and Missouri.


Oklahoma has also grown to be a significant player in acres of planted cotton- here in 2020- the state is the third largest cotton state in terms of planted acres- behind Texas and Georgia. The 2020 planted number by Oklahoma cotton producers is 640,000 acres.


Oklahoma is the fourth largest state in grain sorghum acres- 330,000 acres have been planted and it is estimated that Oklahoma farmers will harvest 275 thousand acres. The state is a relatively minor player in corn and soybean plantings- with corn planted acreage pegged at 410,000 acres in 2020- and expected harvest numbers to be 370,000. In the case of soybeans- Oklahoma producers have planted 550,000 acres with an expected harvest number of 520,000 acres. The 550,000 acres of soybeans makes it the most planted spring crop in the state in 2020.
